Monitoring Tumor Progression Using the iBox® Scientia™ Imaging System
21 Nov 2014
One application of molecular imaging in cancer biology is the tracking of tumor lesions implanted within mice. In a recent experiment, mice were implanted with a cancer cell line expressing fluorescent proteins and imaged on a weekly basis. Through the use of the iBox Scientia Imaging System (UVP, LLC), tumor lesions can be visually tracked and quantified with a high quantum efficiency camera, powerful light source, quality lenses and interchangeable filter sets to image fluorescence across a wide spectral range from 450 nm to near infrared (NIR being 700nm and greater).
